Sample cover letter for Full Time position at Blackrock


Client Business Graduate

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am currently studying a Master’s Degree in Finance at EDHEC Business School. Next Summer, I aim to undertake the Analyst Program in the Client Business department at BlackRock. At a career fair on my school campus, I have recently had the opportunity to meet an Institutional Client Support employee and a Graduate Recruiter, who encouraged me to apply to this program. They told me this company and especially this Graduate Program are made for client-focused people. This is exactly the type of position I am looking for.

While working at Natixis Financement as a Debt Recovery Advisor, I have had to figure out solution with people who had not paid their loans. Most of the time, they were in very poor personal situation. I exceeded my objectives by a fast understanding of their situation and by finding the solution which fit to them the most.

Passion and commitment of its founders and team members have led Blackrock to be the largest asset management company in the world with $4.5 trillion assets under management. These are words in which I believe. They lead you to surpass yourself.

During my first year of Bachelor, some colleagues and I have created an association in order to raise funds for people suffering from muscular dystrophy. Only the time we spent and our commitment heave helped us to raise €1400.

I play now basketball for ten years. I realized it is not only talent which lead you to victory but passion, team-work and energy. This way, I have had the chance to be part of a team who reached the finals and won its first championship in 2008.

In all my achievements, I have developed my interpersonal and analytical skills by being conscientious and earger to learn from others. Thank you for taking the time to consider this application and I am looking forward to hearing from you in the near future.

Yours Sincerely
